Guys, I came up with a new game. :partyhat:

Rules:

1. User A posts the short beginning of a sentence like "Why do people...".

2. User B googles it in whatever language and tells us what Google suggested and posts it.

3. After that user B also gives the beginning of another sentence for the next user.

Note:
- You have to specify in what language you googled it in.
- You have to write the results in English (if you wish then also in the original language you chose to google in).
- If Google doesn't give you any suggestions then you can write what the first search results are.

Let's begin:

The next person shall google: "What would happen if..."

As far as I know it's "(movie) theater" in U.S. English, and "cinema" in U.K. (possibly other Commonwealth) English. I haven't heard of "cinema theatre" before.

Whoops.

---

The literal translation of "to annoy" didn't give me any suggestions, so I used dare fastidio but it has a slightly broader meaning than "to annoy", it can also mean "to have an uncomfortable feeling".

 (it)

Mi dà fastidio quando studio e un velociraptor
Mi dà fastidio quando il mio ragazzo mi tocca
Mi dà fastidio quando tocco il glande
Mi dà fastidio quando mi bacia

 (en)

It annoys me when I study and a velociraptor
It annoys me / I have an uncorfortable feeling when my boyfriend touches me
It annoys me / I have an uncorfortable feeling when I touch my glans
It annoys me / I have an uncorfortable feeling when he/she kisses me
